Life is good when you can adapt! We had planned to stay at a place and after we got there it was so full of sand burrs we couldn't even walk the dogs. The managers were nice, gave us our money back and we eased on down the road 1.5 hours to the Rocker D in Mineral Wells, TX. Nice place and only 45 minutes from our appointment with a flooring guy.

Win some, wine some, eat well and enjoy my friend.

I have a question .... do any of the GC attendees have any experience pointing the roof mounted dish properly or good apps to help pinpoint the crazy thing, right now its kind of hit and miss.

Cheers !!!

I was just wading through the new update. Yikes.

Ugh, I just HATE sand spurs! We stayed at a casino campground in Mississippi last year and our little dog was just miserable with those dang things. I found them in the moho carpet for a couple of months after that trip.

Adapting and adjusting for sure. We left our hunker down spot about 10:30. There wasn't much snow and the roads had been salted by then. I could see trucks driving highway speed so I took a chance. The snow plows were clearing the shoulders by then.

The wind from the north helped push us into Colorado where the snow fall was maybe an inch. We have another 50 miles before we head east. I'll be cussing the wind then.

Relaxing? Nope. Mutating? Maybe.

It still looks beautiful, good pics. I don't care which way we face as long as I can have a clear line of site for my tailgater dish.

I have been following the weather reports for Colorado, and my son said they got some snow in Fort Collins, but I don't know how much. Here in Illinois it is WINDY! So we are going to stay put for awhile before heading north to Rockford. Our plans have been in flux for some time. We did finally find a new S&B home here. So that is not a problem any longer. But new problems have risen, forcing us to go to Rockford instead of Kansas just yet. Being retired and on the Rainbow is a lot of fluxation/mutation. Safe travels everyone!

Back on the internet

Computer said there was a Windows 8.1 version available for update from 8.0. Followed the step by step directions carefully, to the letter, and wham . . . . . . my computer was messed up big time. Most aspects of operation were gray, black and white, no graphics, no words showing in sections. So . . . . .

I called Microsoft to tell me how to restore version 8 and purge 8.1. Friendly tech led me through the restore. No help. I then really did a smart thing. I backed up all of my files, etc on a memory stick.

Tried to seek help from many sources and tried things on my own (big mistake) and no solutions to the problems.

Took my computer into local electronics box store and had them purge everything and set to factory specs. Since I got it back it's been a time consuming chore to reinstall files, rest favorites, etc. I'm ready to fly.

Can't wait for the 24th. Good thoughts to those that are ailing, RV repair issues, or facing traveling issues.

Our MH is in the shop and should be ready for our GC@CL departure.

More later. TC

Some people will do and say anything to get out of that four letter word beginning with "W" and ending with "K." Sheesh!
